SeeRRI December 2020

We are pleased to be back with news on our project! Here is a quick summary of what has been going on since our last newsletter:

2020 was a busy year for SeeRRI with regional stakeholder foresight workshops in B30, Lower Austria, and Nordland. We have learned so much together in the process of practicing responsible regional planning through RRI. Early impacts of SeeRRI have materialized in all three territories, despite the challenges presented by Covid-19, and we continue to facilitate mutual learning through transnational online workshops. Going into 2021, we are committed to engaging in trans-contextual learning and disseminating our project outcomes through publications, conferences, and joint actions with other RRI projects.

SeeRRI is actively involving in joint activities with other SwafS14 projects, especially in dissemination activities, Monitoring and Evaluation action. So far we have generated synergies with the following projects:

RRI2SCALE is a H2020 project that seeks to embed RRI governance structures in European pilot regions, in the fields of “smart cities – energy – transportation”. The project links RRI with regional competitiveness by deploying advanced stakeholder engagement strategies and leveraging foresight and co-creation techniques to bring together societal actors in R&I.

CHERRIES |Constructing Healthcare Environments through Responsible Research Innovation and Entrepreneurship Strategies is an EU funded project aimed at testing RRI and demand- oriented approaches to inform and shape regional innovation policies and strategies (eg. smart specialisation) to better meet the current challenges healthcare innovation ecosystems are facing in Europe.

The SUPER MoRRI project departs from the MoRRI project which was the first large-scale attempt at creating a monitoring and evaluation system for Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), and seeks to go beyond this (2019). With recognition of the ambition of RRI of shaping research and innovation (R&I) systems that are better aligned with societal values and needs, the EU-funded SUPER MoRRI project is committed to developing a monitoring and evaluation framework to support this transformative process.
